Hey, welcome! Thanks for dropping by. As I'm not really good at social selling, please allow me to just share my thoughts on writing as a profession instead.
Writing is not a task but rather a responsibility.
Well, for starters, writing is a matter of pedantically organizing the thoughts by handpicking the most suitable adjectives and adverbs available in a language just to come up with well-written arguments that (should) entice readers.
For that, writing as a profession, apparently, is a constant crusade that does not only require time, effort, and language skills; it also entails opening at least twenty tabs at a time, having perpetual blank screen stares, thousands of barely-conscious desk taps, not to mention haphazard mouse clicks, as well as endless eye-and-forehead rubs.
But, behind all these grapples and scuffles is the learning of something called "self-discipline," which means having the guts the keep going especially during the most undesirable circumstances at hand.
With self-discipline, writers get to understand that writing per se is not only a “task” but rather a “responsibility."
As writers are not essentially that "smart" and "eloquent" as many people might think, writing a decent piece practically means learning to have the confidence to seek advice if and when ideas become tortuously elusive.
To complete that decent piece, writers meanwhile get to learn how to trust one’s ability to go through a painstaking, monotonous piece of work that could last for days, weeks, months, and even years.
But, above all these, the best thing about writing is its ability to provide an avenue for bridging the gap between that secluded ivory tower and the ground where the masses live.
As a great professor of mine taught, knowledge must not remain untouchable just because a farmer does not speak the language of a scientist.
